Not Lost in Translation

The Baltimore Sun has interesting Proust "stuff." My college French is far too rusty to translate, but once upon a time I could read a bit of Proust in French. Camus and even Sartre were easier, and I even tackled Andre Malraux's Les Conquerants.
As for Proust, one can actually imagine Proust's writing as a medieval manuscript.

I am afraid I have no french in me. I studied sanskrit in college. Do you know anyone who will teach me french on the internet?

How far have you gone in Proust?
